BIO of the most beautiful "SPICEY"

In the Fall of 2016, Kat Fuqua imported Chic In Time, a stunning palomino  into the USA.  Formerly competing as a jumper in Germany,  the experienced jumping pony took the green hunters by storm.  It was not long then before Kat, a rookie herself at that level, was winning the tri-colors and blues at the 2017 Winter Equestrian Festival.

Having to train "Spicey" to slow down for the American Hunters, Kat won her audience's and judges' hearts with the amazing golden pony and his breathtaking movement and conformation. Spicey was awarded the 2017 Circuit WEF Champion for his green division and went on to take 2nd in the Under Saddle at the 2017 USEF Pony Final, placing 8th Overall out of 93 large green ponies.

By 2018, the very well known pony won over 176 classes in his American career including nearly 30 Championships.  Once again Spicey was 2nd in the Under Saddle this time out of 147 large ponies at the 2018 USEF Pony Finals.  As Kat competed and won both 2018 and 2019 Pony Finals with Brighton and Prestige, the Spicey's riders had only ridden him for just days before, and he place 12th in the Under Saddle and 13th in the model of 147  large ponies in 2019.

At WEF 2019, Spicey was Champion WEF8 and Reserve Champion WEF5 and always top five placings in the mid 80s throughout the circuit.   The golden pony placed FOURTH overall in the circuit standings for Circuit Large Pony Champion of 47 ranked large ponies.


Kat qualified him top 25 in the country at the prestigious 2018 & 2019 Washington International placing FIRST in Under Saddle first year, SECOND in Under Saddle second year, and THIRD in the Stake. Chic In Time carried Kat to THIRD in the WIHS Pony Equitation Finals. He was also SECOND in both Under Saddles at 2019 Harrisburg and DEVON Championships, as well as THIRD and FOURTH over fences at DEVON19.

He is beyond lovable and kind with only two owners ever;  here in the US, and Germany.  Spicey is easy, forward off the leg, and whose fate has a major national title in the making with points expected for Indoors & Devon, and already qualified for USEF Pony Finals.
